This is a center activity I hope to use for multiple activities. So far, it has been used to write poetry but I think it will also be used to write sentences or stories.
I bought another oil drip tray from Autozone for a magnet board. I cut out any interesting words I found in my giant stack of to-be-read magazines that have been sitting in my living room for months. I taped the words to card stock and laminated them. I used a roll of adhesive magnets (and 4th grade library helpers) to make the words into magnets.
Here are a few poems I saw the first week we used this center:
|Suddenly, chocolate chip cookies running|
|1) ten math superhero critters glow like television|
2) sun sparkle glitter upon the ocean
